Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies


  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter diced
  • 1 ¾ cups (350g) granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (118ml) nonfat milk
  • ½ cup (133g) creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups (243g) quick cooking oats


  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • It’s very important that all your ingredients are measured and ready to go before you start and make sure you’ve read the directions before making these cookies. The process goes fast!
  • Melt the butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the sugar and milk. Whisk until smooth then bring to a boil and cook for about 1 ½ minutes, stirring occasionally. NOTE: you MUST boil them long enough or they will not set. To be sure of this, boil the mixture until it reaches 230°F on a candy or instant read thermometer. If you do not have a thermometer, this will take about 1 ½ minutes on medium heat.
  • Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, salt, vanilla, and oats.
  • Use a cookie scoop to drop 2 tablespoon size balls of cookie mixture onto the prepared baking sheets. Let sit to set or chill to harden quicker.


• Be sure to use a regular peanut butter, such as Skippy or Jif (do not use a natural peanut butter that needs stirring)
